Forespar Motor Mate Outboard Lift / Hoist

Am changing the configuration of my boat so this Forespar Motor Mate no longer has a home and is looking for a new owner. Depending on options these motor lifts list for $400 - $500 new. This one has the rubber ball/rubber bushing w/ SS plate for the toe on the deck, the collar to attach it to the stern rail, the cam cleat for the line, and a three-fold purchase (three sheaves in each block) block and tackle. The pole is in two sections and just lifts off the deck toe, so it is easy to store. The pole is 64 inches, the arm is 26 inches. There are four possible angles of the arm to the pole to suit just about any need. The Forespar web site says the lifting capacity is 100 lbs, but I think that the lift is under-rated.

$300 + shipping

Actually, it looks like a Garhauer, not a Forespar, and Garhauers run between 291.50 and 321.50 brand new, plus shipping and the mounting hardware. Garhauer Marine Hardware -3033507

Re: Forespar Motor Mate Outboard Lift / Hoist

I stand corrected! Thanks Al for pointing me to the correct web page. There is no manufacturer's or vendor's stamp on the lift. Upon first looking at the Garhauer site I couldn't find the item.

Given the new information I'll revise my asking price to $200 + shipping.

This is a great buy.

An excellent price for an excellent piece of gear. I had one on my last boat.

The lift has been sold. It has a good new home on a boat headed south this fall.
